the deadly explosion and she joins us live. sharon? >> frank, here behind me, the explosion site, where rebuilding has begun but federal documents show other factors from miles away could have contributed to the explosion. just 50 minutes before the september explosion and fire that killed eight people and destroyed 38 san bruno homes, a botched pg&e repair job in millipitas caused gas pressure to rise on all of the lines serving the peninsula according to the national transportation safety board documents. apparently when power was cut in millipitas, it automatically raised pressure to three peninsula gas lines above the usual level but below the maximum. and at one point pg&e could not tell the real pressure. >> it certainly raises questions about what is going on and how it might possibly have impacted what happened in san bruno. >> reporter: some who live and work on the peninsula like this home nurse sara are alarmed. >> i am really terrified. i could be out visiting a family and have the house blow up. >> i think it is scary. pg&e knows a lot more than what they're leading
